Apple Unveils Three New iPhones
The iPhone XS Max features the largest screen Apple has ever produced on a mobile device.

(CCM) — Apple has updated its iPhone range with three new models, including two with much larger screens than the 5.8-inch display on the iPhone X, at its Sept. 12 event.

The $1099 iPhone XS Max has a huge 6.5-inch OLED display, while the budget $749 iPhone XR has a lower quality 6.1-inch LCD screen. The range is rounded out with the $999 iPhone XS, which is an updated version of the iPhone X with an identical form factor, offered at the same price.

The iPhone XS Max has a significantly larger screen size than the iPhone 8 Plus, previously Apple's largest phone, despite the two devices being almost exactly the same size.

The two more expensive new iPhone models have steel bodies available in gold, silver, and space grey, while the XR comes with a less damage-resistant aluminum chassis which will be available in six colors: blue, coral, yellow, white, black, and red.

All three phones are equipped with Apple's latest mobile processor: the A12 Bionic chip. This features seven-nanometer transistor technology, which Apple says will make the chip faster, resulting in improvements such as more rapid facial recognition when users log in with the Face ID system, and 30% faster app launch times.

It will also be more energy efficient, which means that the new iPhones' batteries will last up to 30 minutes longer on a single charge, Apple suggests.
